I Wanna Rock!

Recommended Posts

I go through various musical stages and I've decided that I need some rock in my life. It seems like everything new in that genre is mostly whiny little teenage boys. I was excited about Velvet Revolver and bought their CD, but it's just OK. I think my expectations were too high. I would appreciate any suggestions.

:help:

I felt the same way after listening to the entire album, it sounds more like a hard core STP with a whined down voice, and the GnR influences are weak & disregarded. I like the songs Spectacle & Headspace though.

To add some international flavour to your Rock mix, get the Cold Chisel greatest hits CD. Our Australian friends on the boards suggested it, and I've really enjoyed it.

the truth we havta face is all the rock that matters is old and if your looking for true rock get out those old greatest hits cds! i think that the new "guns and roses greatest hits" is pretty good, try that, it depends wat type of rock your into?

alternative

punk

pop

metal

Highly recommended are Muse. They have had three albums out: "Showbiz", "Origin Of Symmetry" and "Absolution" (plus also the double, "Hullabloo", but that was a collection of B-side and a live album). They are all really great albums - Some hard hitting rock, interspersed with some spine-tingling melodies. They are my favourite band of the decade (so they therefore join:

The Beatles - 60s

Sex Pistols - 70s

Stone Roses - 80s

Radiohead - 90s

so you can see where I'm coming from).

I was also extremely impressed with Wilco's "Yanke Hotel Foxtrot" once it grew on me. I haven't heard their new one yet. I will be buying that on Tuesday, but it got good reviews over here in little England. I also quite like what I've heard from NZ band The Datsuns.

Hope that helps. [However, if you like Guns 'n' Roses, it won't!]
